At what point does the postapocalypse become prehistory, cycling past Revelation back around to Genesis? Margot Robbie plays a young survivor living on the family farm after a nuclear exclamation point punctuates the rest of humanity’s sentence. Her life is thrown into turmoil by the arrival of two men (Chiwetel Ejiofor and Chris Pine), and she becomes something of an Eve with two Adams. The small cast and crew made the film in such bucolic seclusion—on location on a farm in New Zealand—that for all they knew, the end of days had actually occurred. “We felt like we were in this bubble,” says Robbie. “We had no phone reception, and you felt really, really cut off from the outside world. It was bizarre but so perfect for the film.”
Margot makes an appearance in The Hollywood Reporter’s New A-List as one of the fifteen stars getting “all the offers”.
The Wolf of Wall Street breakout went from relative anonymity to booking gigs opposite Will Smith (February’s Focus), Chris Pine and Chiwetel Ejiofor (Z for Zachariah) and Tina Fey (Fun House). The Aussie then nabbed the role of Jane in Warner Bros.’ Tarzan remake, opposite Alexander Skarsgard, as well as her first superhero gig, playing Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad.
The homegrown Hollywood darling is sitting pretty at the top of our annual list of celebrity stunners. She thrills audiences in films such as The Wolf of Wall Street and Focus and regularly wows on the red carpet, but the breathtaking 24-year-old Queenslander tells WHO that she feels most beautiful “after a day at the beach when you’ve been in the sun and salt water all day.”

Margot Robbie has revealed to Who Magazine she hopes to make the transition to become a director one day.
Speaking in the Australian publication’s latest addition, the 24-year-old confessed that during filming for her latest flick, Focus, she couldn’t help but help but take charge with the direction of some of the scenes.
Recalling a time when the cast were blocking a scene she explained: ‘I was probably bossing everyone around, as usual and John [Requa] and Glenn [Ficarra] turned to me and said: “Are you planning on directing one day?”’
‘I said I was. And then they said, “Good. You’re going to make a really good director.” That meant the world to me.’
